This is not a new issue and is true for all types of recordings.

Not far ago I did some test on encoding quite old vdr-recordings (saved uncut) 
with x264 and cutting with recent vdr.
The result was a muted movie after the first joinpoint.
May be x264 is too restrictive, don't know - but showed, that the cutted 
result is not conforming to standards (at least the standards, x264 expects).

For me, the only acceptable result is using projectx for cutting SD-recordings 
(no matter what format).
Luckily I don't have HD-recordings with intersecting comercials yet, so 
cutting HD-recordings without joinpoints using vdr is acceptable.

kind regards
